Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine The first name that springs to mind when thinking of British cars at Le Mans in the 1920s is Bentley, but the Sunbeams were among the most advanced cars of the time and in 1925 Sammy Davis and Jean Chassagne brought their car home second overall. The sister car of George Duller and Henry Seagrave had led the race early and were rewarded for covering the greatest distance in the first hour, the team also received a 500 Franc prize for having the most comfortable car! SLM’s model captures the shape of the cars pretty well and as usual in these kits there is a wealth of excellent cast white metal for the chassis and suspension. Then main body is in resin and though much of the clean up has already been done on this for you, there is still a little fettling to do. Brackets for the lights and mudguards must be made in brass rod (again usual for these kits) which may be a little advanced for the novice builder but the hand built models show that the finished articles look very good.
